Event Information

Medieval Festival recreating the gathering of King John

This three-day event recreates the gathering of King John and his loyal followers to put down a rebellion and fend off a potential invasion from France.

Set within a large, tented encampment on the lower lawns of the castle, the event offers a plethora of activities to immerse visitors in the medieval world. Experience the thrill of axe throwing, archery, and falconry demonstrations, and witness combat re-enactments. Children will even have the chance to participate in Arundel Castle’s renowned ‘Kids Battles’.

There will be demonstrations of period crafts in the craft tent, including pewter casting, forging, cooking, leather work, and more. And visitors are sure to enjoy the live music from medieval musicians Myal and Peg, and the fire-eating skills of Whatapalaver.

Don’t miss this unique opportunity to witness history come to life at one of England’s most iconic castles.
